BUILDING PICTURES


Nathan Green

 

Opening Reception: Friday, February 21, 2014, 6-8pm

Exhibition runs through March 29, 2014.

 

In his fifth solo presentation with Art Palace, Nathan Green further explores the formal and structural qualities of abstract painting. By colliding tropes of modern abstraction with traditional crafting techniques and common construction materials, Green’s work playfully re-examines the act and history of painting. The works in Building Pictures collapse painting, sculpture, and installation into singular hybrid forms that pay homage to rich histories, while aiming to add to the language of abstraction and forge a new painterly vocabulary.
Most recently, Nathan Green exhibited work in the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston (Outside the Lines). In 2012, he completed the Artist in Residency program at Central Trak (Dallas, TX,) and has shown work at the Austin Museum of Art, Subliminal Projects (Los Angeles), and LVL3 (Chicago). As a founding member of Okay Mountain collective, Green has exhibited at Freight & Volume (New York, NY), Prospect 1.5 (New Orleans, LA), University of Houston’s Blaffer Museum and DeCordova Sculpture Park (Lincoln, MA). Green lives and works in Dallas, Texas and is Assistant Curator of Education at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.

BELIEVE WHAT YOU WANT


Tony Day

 

Opening Reception: Friday, February 21, 2014, 6-8pm

Exhibition runs through March 29, 2014.

 

Day’s recent work is inspired by an ongoing interest in progressive values and thinking about freedom. In general, he is thinking about obtaining, having, creating, giving, protecting, and valuing freedom.  These portraits are of prominent American religious leaders, grouped together they create the tip of the iceberg in terms of diversity of belief in the United States. These figures in their divergent ideas prompt the question, “what do you believe in?”, and create an interesting lens to focus on the thinking and understanding of freedom. 
Tony Day, native of Houston, received a BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and Tufts University, and an EdM in Art and Education from Harvard University. Day’s work has been included in exhibitions at Lawndale Art Center, Diverseworks, O’Kane Gallery, and Box13 Art Space. He teaches visual art and video production at John H. Reagan High School.
